There was a question posted on the Getty web page about which issues
effect the environment that we live in. My environment is the desert of
Tucson, Arizona. I feel one of the biggest ecological problem is
expansion. Tucson is a small city right now but is growing at a rapid
rate. I know growth is enevitable, but it bothers me, personal, to see a
lot of land torn down to see houses, apartments, or shopping centers
being built in their place. Tucson is surrounded by mountains which could
possibly stop growth, but I seriously doubt that. Another issue that is
related to growth is garbage, and smog. All the new people in Tucson
effect the environment usually in a negative way. I guess that there is
nothing I can do to change Tucson's growth but being aware of what humans
have done to change the environment is important. I also feel that waste
is a huge issue that needs to be addressed in Tucson. We have, "beat the
peak" slogan which tells the citizens of Tucson not to water at peak
times, but says really nothing about waste. I feel that waste is a nation
wide problem. These issues need to be addressed in a classroom so that
children can begin thinking about their environment early and hopefully
act to change things.
